After knocking Lorna down, Cindy escapes from the burning ladies room through a window. As Lorna lies unconscious, Gabe meets ups with Felicia & John in the restaurant. Gabe knows Lorna was there and starts to get nervous when she doesn't appear. Grant toasts Donna as the new owner of the Harbour Club. Smelling smoke, Gabe told Felicia to find Lorna. They realize Lorna is in the burning room and Gabe busts through the door to get to her. Cass makes sure no one else was in the burning room as John works on an injured Lorna. Soon, they all leave for the hospital. Grant eventually puts out the fire and then told Donna the damage was her responsibility because she is the new owner. Nick arrives and brushes off Donna's concern about Vicky. Sharlene also arrives at the Harbour Club and gets cozy with Grant who was still pleased with the fact that he thinks Vicky was dead. Searching the fire scene, Joe thinks it may be an accident but recovers a scarf he assumes is Lorna's (its really Cindy's)


Lorna was in obvious distress with smoke inhalation, a collapsed lung & internal injuries. John treats her while her concerned family and friends look on. Regaining consciousness, Lorna becomes terrified as always at the thought of being in a hospital. Gabe and Felicia try to calm her to no avail and they rush her to the operating room. Joe finds Gabe in the waiting room and reports he thinks the fire was an accident. Gabe was reminded of the fire that killed his first wife and son. Then Joe gives Gabe the scarf, who recognizes it as Cindy's. Gabe told Joe how upset Cindy was and how she didn't always get along with Lorna. He told Joe find Cindy. Meanwhile, Chris approaches Matt at the Herald and reluctantly told his suspicions of Cindy. He explains the bad feeling he has because of what he knows of her past and possible love for Gabe. Matt was understandably horrified and tells Chris to stay out of it unless he has proof.


Grant went to Cindy's apartment to find it empty. He finds her journal and rips out a page with his name in it. He makes sure the journal and her "Gabe" scrapbook are easily accessible to the police. Grant leaves as Joe arrives with a search warrant. He finds the journal and the scrapbook and realizes the extent of Cindy's obession. Joe reports his findings to Gabe who went from feelings of horror to guilt that he didn't listen to Lorna's suspicions. He told Joe to try and find cindy but keep the search quiet.


Bobby returned to the pipe Vicky was hiding in to find her gone. Every subsequent scene with him in it involved him looking in various places for her and whistling their signal. The show ends with a freeze frame of him still looking for her (it was very weird they ended it this way)

GRANT'S APARTMENT: Hal brought Grant an earring belonging to Vicky from the explosion site. Grant comments it was a gift from Ryan and that Vicky was always sentimental. He rages at Hal that Vicky's family was not informing him about her disappearance and that Cindy the loose cannon was still out there. Grant leaves to try and get some info from Gabe about cindy's whereabouts but Gabe isn't talking. When Grant returns he told Hal he has been waiting since the day he found out Vicky was carrying his child to be a father and now he's finally going to be. He told Hal he has a phone call for him to make.


After calling several nearby hospitals from Vicky's house, Jake went to the Herald to have Chris help him search for her from the computer. Not finding her admitted to any hospitals both relieves and frustrates Jake and of course, he takes it out on Chris. They both notice a story about a UFO sighting outside of town. Chris told Jake about Lorna and accuses him of being too wrapped up in Vicky. When Jake went to convince Gary to look for Vicky, Chris calls a friend in Boston to follow up on a hunch he has about Cindy. Chris reports to Matt that Cindy's alibi the night of Sarah and Sam's deaths does not check out and that he believes Cindy may have had something to do with Lorna's accident.


Donna waits dejectedly at the restaurant for news of Vicky. Michael arrives and they comfort each other. Donna exclaims that she never liked Bobby Reno and blames him for Vicky's disappearance. Michael was beginning to have doubts about trusting Carl but tries to remain optimistic for Donna's sake.


Lorna's friends and family hold vigil while John operates. Gabe has flashbacks of all the times he and Lorna spend together. There was tension with both Carl and Rachel waiting but both put it aside for Felicia's sake. Joe reports to Gabe that cindy may still be in BC and a threat to Lorna. Meanwhile, Cindy was hiding out in the hospital and calls to find out about Lorna's condition, disguising her voice. John brought Gabe into the operating room and has him try to reach Lorna when it looks like she won't make it. As they work furiously on her, Gabe told her he loves her and reminds her of all the children they are planning on having. That gets her heart beating again and she makes it through surgery. Meanwhile, when Amanda looks for a tissue in Rachel's purse, she finds her mother's prenatal vitamins. Amanda confronts her mother with the information and demands to know why she didn't tell her. Rachel was angry but they can't really get into it with Carl there.

Paulina hangs up the phone on Cindy who slips further from sanity when she can't reach her doctor.

CHRIS/GABE: Chris confronts Gabe with what he knows about Cindy's possible involvement in Sarah and Sam's death and the possible connection to Lorna's accident. Chris questions why Cindy would come to BC after being institutionalized in Boston and suggests it may have something to do with Gabe. Gabe agrees that Cindy may still be a threat to Lorna and asks Chris to hold off on printing the story until they catch Cindy because she'll run if she knows they are on to her. Chris agrees to give Gabe 24 hours.


Bobby continues to look for Vicky and realizes one of Grant's henchmen is following him. He hides behind some bushes and hears the bad guy get a call to let him know the police are coming. Bobby comes out of his hiding place and keeps whistling for Vicky.

Gary has a hunch this was important and reports to Joe who says to follow it up. Jake continues to harrass Gary about filing a missing person's report on Vicky and basically makes himself a nuisance in the station house, despite Chris's best efforts to keep him out of trouble.

Matt told him to go home but he and Chris sit outside the Herald and talk. Jake blames himself for everything but Chris assures him tht he was not at fault and that vicky knows how much he loved her.

Carl reminds her that love was not enough and although he can see the love in her eyes, he knows he is alone now with nothing to live for. Rachel watches him walk away, not telling him that their child was something for him to live for.


Tomas reluctantly gives Joe the information about seeing Jake under Bobby's truck. Sophia reminds them of Jake's threat to Bobby at the New Year's Eve fundraiser that if Bobby won't live to see 197 if he didn't leave Vicky alone. Joe orders a search warrant for Jake's apartment and told Sophia & Tomas to keep this quiet. Paulina arrives and told Joe she's worried about Jake. She notices her husband was distracted and asks what's wrong, but Joe blows her off and says he'll see her later at home. At Jake's apartment, Joe and his search team find some implicating evidence.


Chris and Matt discuss the two big stories - the fire at the Harbour Club & the truck explosion. Sophia arrives and asks if they've seen Jake. They say no and Matt asks Sophia to talk to the Hudson family about Vicky's obituary and she agrees. Jake comes in all wild eyed, ranting and raving that they're going to run a story on the front page about the killer Grant Harrison. Everyone watches him, afraid and no one was able to calm him down. Matt leaves in disgust, Sophia leaves in fear and after another confrontation, Chris leaves too. Jake proceeds to get the story he wants about Grant written.


Matt brought his mom some hot cocoa and asks if she's see Carl. He tries to tell her not to feel sorry for him and Rachel angrily reminds her son that she still loves Carl and when he hurts, so does she. Rachel points out that Carl was devastated because he transferred all his love for Ryan to Vicky and he was so happy that Bobby, with his connection to Ryan, was showing an interest in him. And now, Carl has nothing and no one. Matt remains unsympathetic and finally, frustrated, Rachel asks him to take her to the airport because she's going on a short trip.


John updates Sharlene on Lorna's progress and asks how she was doing. Sharlene reluctantly admits that things are much more organized after Felicia took over. She suggests to John that Kirkland and Steven come stay at the farm to give Donna a break. Nick comes in after a workout and John asks him to go get the boys. He readily agrees to help and only hesitates slightly when John told him the boys are at Vicky's. Both Sharlene and John are concerned for him and how he's handling Vicky's "death". Nick says that he and Vicky didn't get along at first and there's a lot he didn't get to know about her. Sharlene assures him that Vicky knew how he felt.


Paulina serves Tomas lunch and asks him what Joe seems to be keeping from her. Tomas was evasive and they are interrupted by Carl who has come from the cemetery. Paulina forces him to have some soup and Carl gets angry when Tomas questions Grant's guilt in Vicky and Bobby's deaths. He later apologizes, thinking Tomas knows no better. Carl asks Paulina about Vicky's memorial and she says Donna isn't going to have it until the bodies are found. Carl gets excited when he was reminded of that fact and leaves telling Paulina there might be a God yet. Jake comes in and shows Paulina the story he's written about Grant. She was worried about him and says so. Just then, Joe arrives and proceeds to arrest Jake for the murders of Vicky and Bobby. Paulina watches in disbelief as Jake's face registers the shock and horror of the situation.


Final preparations are made for Lorna to be spirited out of BC and for Josie to pose as the sick woman. There were several touching scenes between Felicia and Gabe and Lorna, especially when Gabe proposed again and put the ring back on Lorna's finger. Gary and Josie discuss their work-forced separation when Gary points out it will look strange if he hangs around too much at "Lorna's" bedside. Going to get more bandages to disguise Lorna, Felicia literally runs into cindy who was hiding behind her surgical mask. Meanwhile, after evading Gabe's questions about his relationship with Cindy, Grant has found Cindy's hiding space and picks up one of her dropped pills and a burnt match. Cindy returns after trying unsuccessfully to get info on Lorna and throws down her mask in frustration. Just then, Grant pops up out of a clothes hamper and grabs her saying, "Gotcha!"
